'I always say a day is wasted without laughter....'

Alison Hammond loves to laugh. And the nation laughs with her. Her sunny personality and zest for life has brought joy to millions and has made her one of the UK's best-loved television presenters. Known for her hilarious and unforgettable interviews with Hollywood A-listers, Alison's also responsible for countless classic moments of broadcasting gold - from getting stuck on a caravan door to delivering Christmas cash dressed as an elf! 

But who really is Alison Hammond, and how did she become the personality that we know and love? Shaped by the influence of her incredible mum, Alison went from small roles on television shows as a youngster to that life-changing entry into Big Brother, before landing her dream job on This Morning. And through it all she found the joy in every day, the positives in any situation.

You've Got to Laugh will give a never-before-seen insight into Alison's life: her loves, her losses - and a side order of gossip. As well as being a hugely entertaining and uplifting listen, Alison's story will inspire you to grab life with both hands and make the most of every single moment.

lovely Read

An honest and heartwarming biography. Well worth the listen. I hadn't realised Alison has wanted to be an actor or the amount of training she had done.
